THE ULTIMATE SURVIVAL GUIDE for anyone who thinks they'd survive the world's most hostile environments - or at least imagine they could do.


First issued to airmen in the 1950s, the Air Ministry's Sea Survival guide includes original and authentic emergency advice to crew operating over the ocean.

With original illustrations and text, these survival guides provide an insight to military survival techniques from a by-gone era.

Packed with original line drawings and instruction in:

- How to find water in a dry stream course
- How to make a hat out of seat cushions
- What to do in the event of meeting 'hostile parties'

Focussing on one of the harshest climates on Earth, Desert Survival is one of four reprints of The Air Ministry's emergency survival pamphlets.

Others include:
Jungle Survival
Sea Survival
Arctic Survival
